1. Informal Interview - The teacher or administrator talks with the student to reach an agreement regarding the student's behaviour.
2. Further Consultation - Where there is guidance staff in a school, a conference or series of conferences may be held by a teacher and counsellor with the specific goal of developing a plan for changing attitudes and improving student behaviour. If there is no guidance staff, then a classroom teacher in cooperation with the principal will develop this plan.
3. Formal Interview - A conference is held with the student, the teacher and an administrator and/or guidance counsellor to develop a plan for changing the student's behaviour
4. Detention - The student is detained at the school for specific unacceptable behaviour. Where such detention extends beyond regular school hours, the parents are informed.
5. Withdrawal from Classroom Setting - Where specific unacceptable behaviour is deemed to have a negative impact upon the classroom-learning environment, the
student is withdrawn to a supervised alternate location to complete his/her assignment. Such withdrawal would normally be temporary but when a prolonged withdrawal is recommended, the parent should be contacted.
6. Removal of Privileges - Privileges to school areas (playground, gymnasium, library, etc.) transportation services, and school-related activities are removed under certain circumstances.
7. Restitution - The student, or parent if the student is under age, is required to compensate for damages incurred. Such restitution may be monetary in nature but could take alternative forms.
8. Behavioural/Performance Contract - In some instances, the student is required to meet specific behavioural standards in order to avoid more severe levels of consequence. Such expectations are developed between the school, the parent and the student. Outcomes are clarified for failure to meet the behavioural standards. Such an agreement is documented with copies provided for all concerned parties.
9. Student Services Centre - Student Services Centre personnel are involved to assist in the remediation of some unacceptable behaviour. Such involvement may include a level of counselling for the student that is beyond in-school capabilities.
10. Outside Agency Involvement - In some circumstances, student misbehaviours have implications that extend beyond the jurisdiction of the school. In such cases personnel from outside agencies (i.e., Child and Family Services, Mental Health, RCMP) are involved as necessary or as required by law.
In-School- Where the student is suspended from the classroom and placed in a supervised alternate setting.
Out-of-School- Where the student is not allowed to attend school for a period of time. A suspension from school is a serious consequence, which is imposed subject
to Board Policy E-27. In such cases the necessary documentation is forwarded to the Superintendent’s Office.
In all cases the suspension is subject to appeal with the maximum single suspension being set at:
(a) Principal – five days.
(b) Superintendent - up to six weeks. In all cases of suspension the parent is notified.
12. Expulsion1 - Expulsion by the Board of Trustees is a serious consequence resulting when a student's continued presence in the Division schools is injurious to other pupils. Expulsion requires an official action by the Board of Trustees and is completed in accordance with the Public Schools Act Sec. 48 (4). An expulsion means that the student may not attend any school operated by the Board of Trustees of the Lord Selkirk School Division until such time as the Board may remove the expulsion.
